The reciprocal impact of breast feeding and culture form on maternal behavior and infant development



The reciprocal impact of breast feeding and culture form on maternal behavior and infant development



Journal of Biosocial Science 13(1): 1-18



A comparative study was made of Japanese and American maternal behavior and infant development from birth to 3 mo. of age, especially in relation to infant feeding practices. The effect of cultural differences on the initiation and prolongation of breast-feeding is discussed and consideration is given to factors such as alertness of the mother during the birth, post-partum procedures in hospital, family sleeping arrangements and the general style of maternal care. The possibility of a post-partum critical period and its effect on infant behavior and development is discussed.
